Yeah sorry to say but that's all they look at but here's the deal: they only look at your 'pre-req' gpa. My overall when I applied last year was like a 3.15, BUT
, when the counselor (her name is ***** *****, or ***** something like that) calculated my pre-req gpa in - the requirements list is on the requirement sheet that you can get on the usa school of nursing site - my gpa came out to like ~3.3-3.4. So here's the deal: there's about 400-450 people that apply for the fall for about 90-100 spots (60 at Mobile campus and 40 at Fairhope), so anything under a 3.2 -3.3 pre-req gpa would be a longshot, so don't do what I did - and make sure you apply to more schools
than just South. Give yourself a better shot at being accepted and make sure that you check the box on the 15 page application that says you are willing to attend the Baldwin County campus in fairhope (25 minutes away) if you don't get accepted to the Mobile campus - I'm not kidding, I may not have been accepted had I not checked that box. I BARELY got in. Gotta say though, I really wish I would have went to another BSN program though, these people really don't care about students. Not to be a drag though. Oh, you need to make sure you see ***** to get her to certify your admissions counseling pre-req gpa, and if it's under a 3.1 or so, save yourself the 50 bucks adm fee. Good luck.
